Creating Smiles with Music Therapy!

Since 1993, the KEYS Program has been delivering smiles to the bedside of pediatric patients through its music therapy outreach programs!

To keep the kiddos we serve safe, healthy and smiling during the pandemic, we are providing all of our music therapy sessions by telehealth/zoom. 


All sessions are provided by our board certified music therapist and include music activities such as; songwriting, recording, instrument playing, music appreciation, movement, singing and lots of smile making!

Thanks to our foundation partners, sponsors and donors, we are able to provide FREE music therapy for kiddos battling cancer, serious illnesses and their siblings!

KEYS kid Amelia with Adrienne.jpg

“Amelia is singing along to her music therapy session in the car as we travel down the road to Boston for her next surgery. It really made the trip go by so much faster and helped her focus on something other than her fears and anxiety leading up to surgery. We are so thankful to have the KEYS Program along with us on our journey, literally!”
